The EISP aims to digitize judicial processes to speed up litigation of cases, according to Valte. A five-year program, the EISP is to be implemented from 2010 to 2015 with a total project cost of P774.6 million, she said. “‘Ito ang sinuportahan ng administrasyon, at kung ano ang ni-request nilang funding for that, naibigay naman po,” she said. Sereno met with members of media on Thursday, Aug. 28, to mark her second year as chief justice. At the media forum, she discussed various issues and projects, among them the e-court initiative. ?We are looking towards 273 e-courts in 2015, from 61 in 2013. This will be equivalent to 25-percent of total caseload nationwide,? Sereno said. ?Judges have to understand cutting edge innovations not only in procedural reform but also in technology such as e-courts,? the chief magistrate said. In April this year, the government launched the e-Subpoena system aimed at helping secure better attendance of police witnesses in criminal cases. — PNA]]>
